Just realised what a fantastic and varied few days I’ve just had – without even leaving North West Wales! For anyone who thinks there’s nothing going on up here; my last seven days have included (1/3) playing accordion with young rising violin/singing star Ben Holder in Cricieth (2/3) meeting and planning the ACW Parc project with Greg Byatt and David Woodfall in Denbigh, (3/3) Lovely duo concert in Powis Hall,Bangor with Iain Ballamy (video here) (5/3) gig with Benn Clatworthy, Neil Yates, Pete Turner and Eryl Roberts at the Ship in Colwyn Bay and yesterday an amazing art and improvised music workshop for primary school kids in Abererch, Pwllheli with artist Catrin Williams.Some pretty crazy energy in this!Some more audio from the Ballamy and Clatworthy sessions to follow hopefully……
Off to Rome next week for a more run-of-the-mill kind of week!
